The pressure is on.
On Monday, a dozen Republican House members publicly called for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to completely recuse herself from the imminent discussions regarding the travel ban case because of her comments about President Donald Trump.
The request came in the form of a letter to Ginsburg. Here’s what it said:
“Your public criticism of Donald Trump during the campaign included statements such as, ‘I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president.’ You referred to Donald Trump as ‘a faker.’ When asked about the possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidency, you responded, ‘I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.’
“You are bound by law to recuse yourself from participation in this case. There is no doubt that your impartiality can be reasonable questioned, indeed, it would be unreasonable not to question your impartiality.”
The letter was signed by Duncan and Reps. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., Brian Babin, R-Texas, Don Bacon, R-Neb., Scott Desjarlais, R-Tenn., Neal Dunn, R-Fla., Jack Bergman, R-Mich., Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Rod Blum, R-Iowa, Ted Budd, R-N.C., Warren Davidson, R-Ohio and Thomas Garrett, R-Va.
The court agreed to hear arguments in the case in October, the Washington Examiner reported. However, it allowed portions of the travel ban go into effect, according to CNN.
